Yet after joining forces with Lockwood and his pal George Cubbins (Ali Hadji-Heshmati), the extraordinary nature of Lucy’s paranormal talent begins to emerge, leading to the discovery of a dark conspiracy that could change the course of history. Armed with state-of-the-art tools and bucketloads of courage, the trio faces some of the deadliest hauntings in the capital, as well as fierce competition from their bigger rival agencies.’
